The chaplains of Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel will conduct a University Service of Remembrance on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at 2:03 p.m. in the chapel’s Noble Room to honor the 270 people who died aboard Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, on the same date 17 years ago.
Following the service in Hendricks Chapel, those in attendance will proceed to the Place of Remembrance, located in front of the Hall of Languages, where a brief memorial statement will be offered and the Crouse Chimes will sound 35 times in honor of the 35 SU students lost on the flight.
The Chaplain’s Council of Hendricks Chapel holds the memorial service each Dec. 21 at 2:03 p.m., the exact time and date of the crash of Flight 103 in 1988. Thirty-five students returning from a semester of study abroad were lost on that flight.
